On the 4th of March, Trump supporters held a national series of
"March4Trump" events all over the US, but the DC march was supposed to
be the focal point. Instead, DC turnout fizzled with one twitter poster
estimating perhaps 50 Trump supporters on site. DC area antifascists
converged on their location for a disruptive game of anarchist soccer.
US Park Police stole at least one soccer ball that had been kicked
through the area occupied by both sides. All the soccer balls stayed
down at ground level, none were kicked high so no public hazard ever
existed. Police also confronted the alleged owner of the sound system,
demanding it be turned off with the threat that the owner would be
arrested if anyone turned it back on. After some tense moments, the
police set up a front line separating the two sides and from then on
were much less confrontational.
There was a second racist, anti-immigrant event held at the White
House complaining about H1B visas, unknown what its connections were to
the March4Trump. There were reports that the Trumpers on the Mall were
planning to march somewhere, but well over an hour after they had
planned to march they were still on the Mall with antifascists standing
in the way of the intended route. There were both one on one shouting
matches and competing chants between the two sides.
One correction: the permit for the site was presumably held by the March4Trump, not by "Der Fuhrer" himself.
